Theologians have engaged with philosophical traditions in developing their understanding of individual and collective belief. This programme offers you an opportunity to explore these intersections.

You can also choose to focus on philosophy and theology as separate subjects, adjusting the balance between them according to your interests. **Philosophy** Our philosophy programme covers: - ancient and modern intellectual history - logic - metaphysics - ethics - aesthetics **Theology** At Edinburgh, studying theology includes:- biblical studies - Christian theology - the history of Christianity - Islamic studies - religious studies
